    Terrible that a lady has died and another injured. However, I would like to point out that the media has just been waiting to jump on the story as PokeGo is the flavour of the month. Every day there are accidents and I'm sure deaths caused by distracted drivers . watching T.V . playing with the sat nav and of course - phones. Distracted drivers with smartphones or any cellphone is not a new phenomenon, it has been an issue for two decades now, especially the talking driver. Though, one could argue that pokego is an insidious form of distraction more dangerous than the others. I would like to see the data for injuries and death caused by cellphone distraction. Distracted is distracted. Whether it be reading, watching T.V, Lining someone or playing a game - pazudora or Pokemon go, the outrage and repercussions should be equal.

    Well done Japan, incredible effort! Kiryu was awesome on the bend. perhaps that why he was running bend.Cambridge was also clutch on the anchor, he held off the rest, no mere feat! The USA, wow. the BCC analysed the change in depth, and in super slow mo, their panel of experts including Michael Johnson took a deep look, such a close call. incredibly pedantic by the judge. maybe the same judge who robbed the GB 4x400m team? either way some shoddy officiating this T&F .

    https://www.google.com/maps/@34.27416,136.0093711,16.63z?hl=en I know this road well, when I first heard I automatically thought of the well-known corkscrew takinowaki tunnel/viaduct a little further south (check out the google street view of the viaduct part -amazing engineering). I have had one horrible close call in that tunnel with a large truck. Drivers are usually quite vigilant in this sharp tunnel.

    The Osaka tunnel (in the link) is a short one with a minor curve in it, sadly enough to veer off into the opposite lane. One moment of complacency has disastrous repercussions. I guess the southbound driver, has gone straight on, veering into the northbound lane

    Watched this live this morning, great drama, incredible performance by the Brazilian athlete, well done to him and the courage to go for it. That's what the Olympics are all about. Disgraceful performance by the boorish partisan crowd, showing a complete lack of respect. That's not what the Olympics are about at all.

    Just watched the a full replay ( thanks to my vpn and bbc) it was crazy, the comms were sure Vern had it in the bag...and It came down to a classic example of "playing it safe" loosing to "going all out " . Uchimura went big on the bar and Vern didn't and boy I'm sure he will think about that for a very long time.

    It's how Brazilians roll , if you have ever played online video games you will know what taunting poor sports Brazilians can be. Not at all surprising. Definitely a cultural thing.

    Sky news said 19, 4 in a state of cardiac arrest along with the 15 confirmed. The idiosyncratic way of announcing death in Japan, the toll will be a while in adjusting. Sky also reporting a Japanese newspaper in saying the guy wanted to eliminate all the handicapped people in the world.

    Very Sad, poor people had enough in their lot in life and now this? Oxygen thieves mass murdering without guns. No one and no where is safe.

    My son and I just had a great time searching our neighbourhood. This is great if you have kids and can get out together.

    One problem I saw right away. A gym appears at a nearby blind intersection, a really narrow dangerous spot and last place you would ever want a gym.

    Daytime searching in summer -terrible for your phone, worst overheating I ever had on my phone, and the glare of the sun. the Pokemon app is hard enough to see indoors, let alone outdoors. A pretty poor GUI for such a game. Battery killer! take a portable battery charger with you.

    "Variety TV" so called because it lacks any. In all the years I have been here, there are 2 programs that were "Yes, I really want to watch that!" Just two....Sasuke and Kiniku Bansuke. I guess you could throw the Pride and K1 in that too. So much inane, repetitive ad filled bollocks.

    The key to loving Japanse tv....get cable!

    Even that. I cut too recently. I have two things now. UK sky news - which live streams 24 hours on youtube. It's great,check it out, Free HD news. The second: Streaming providers Netflix. Hulu and Amazon Prime . If I feel the need for a movie, doco or TV show, that's where I go.

    I will leave you with a quote from Sideshow Bob of the Simpsons.

    "Sideshow Bob: Don't remind me. My foolish capering destroyed more young minds then syphilis and pinball combined. Ooh, how I loathe that box. An omnidirectional sludge pump droning and burping..."

    I downloaded an apk of the game (Android perks) and thought i was clever, however all one can do so far in japan is start an account, get you first character (appears right near you) and thats it. The GPS coordinates for Japan are not valid yet in the game so trying to set traps or find poke stops is no go :/ oh well have a 5 min head start on the rest y'all when its finally goes live in Japan

    I tried Windows 10 for almost a month, I really wanted to like it, but it was so full of small bugs and compatibility issues that even with the maximum amount of patience I could possibly scrape together I wasn't able to keep using it in good conscience.

    I went from 7 to 10 and it was buggy and glitchy and became annoying. I solved it all by by doing a full reset of the system , just go to the search bar and search "reset"

    After doing a full reset it was like a clean pure win10 install and everything worked smoothly. All the old OEM apps and drivers were now gone and it was now an unadulterated Windows 10. The problem with upgrading is compatibility between the old win 7 drivers and software of the original computer and win 10.

    All problems of the trackpad, network issues, wifi issue all disappeared. Its now better than before. Only had to get one driver for the PC specific Fn keys. otherwise, its all good. Windows 10 when working is much better than 7

    Erdogan? the very same clown who is in the news for saying women who reject motherhood are "incomplete". This Erdogan? He is really having a fine week at displaying his humanity. Troglodite.

    the worst are the station staff at small local stations, sit on their fat butts in their little shacks, and if they do get up it's to bow and say a token greeting. Wish they were actually responsible for the upkeep of the station, so many derelict shabby local stations.

    well as self-proclaimed expert on sharks and my favorite of all the Carcharodon carcharias! all I can say is what a cruel and idiotic decision to keep a majestic and powerful creature in a padding pool, especially when everyone and their aunty knows that these creatures do not handle captivity at all!

    Even if you’ve taken the trouble to download a competing app, other iPhone services such as Siri and Mail will invariably take you to Apple Maps.

    Bingo, of course, it dominates when apple tightly control ios. One of my pet peeves with ios is the inability to set my own default applications. The article highlights maps. A big one for me is I don't like safari, I use chrome. (incidentally, another google product) The default mail app is poor, there so many better third party mail apps, ditto the calendar. Ios could awesome if they gave users more control.

    Henry" Apple" - You can have any colour you want ,as long as its apple.

    Have you seen a map of the claimed territorial waters? China, is having a laugh. Talked about chutzpah. Glad they are being called on it. China arrogance and greed knows no bounds.
